Gollan Vies for 2012 Patinack Farm Classic Quinella

Queensland horseman Tony Gollan is preparing to saddle-up a double pronged attack on the Patinack Farm Classic 2012 at Flemington tomorrow with half-brothers Temple Of Boom and Spirit Of Boom both set to run in the Emirates Stakes Day showdown.

Temple Of Boom

The Galaxy winner Temple Of Boom is one of two 2012 Patinack Farm Classic chances for Tony Gollan

Running as Flemington Race 5 at 2:15pm (AEST) the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) has this year drawn a final field of 15 gallopers, including the ‘Boom Brothers’ from Gollan’s Brisbane stables.

Sharing the same dam Temple Spirit who Gollan prepared for eight race victories between 2003 and 2004, the duo are drawn at opposite ends of the Patinack Farm Classic field.

Group 1 The Galaxy winner Temple Of Boom will jump out wide in gate 14 while Spirit Of Boom, coming off a good second to Fontelina in the Group 2 Yellowglen Stakes (1200m) at the track on Derby Day, will get the inside running in the sprint from barrier one.

The stablemates are rated an equal chance in the Patinack Farm Classic odds however paying $17 to score an upset.

Markets are led by John O’Shea’s last-start Manikato Stakes winning mare Sea Siren ($3.80) followed by Rob Heathcote’s well-tried Brisbane sprinter Buffering ($5) and Manikato runner-up Mental ($6).

Gollan however is happy with his two hopefuls and believes they will be right in the race.

“They get on terrifically well,” Gollan said.

“They’ve travelled a lot together now, they’ve been going to the races together since Spirit was two. They’ve also raced on the same day a lot of the time.

“Temple started travelling a bit before Spirit but now they travel together and they’ve raced against each other a few times now.

“Both horses, I’m very happy with their preparations and this has been their grand final all spring.”

Spirit Of Boom has been in flying form this time in finishing top four in all four of their runs including third to fellow Patinack rival Hallowell Belle in the Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) last month and Gollan hopes they can go one better after going down a mere neck seven days ago in the Yellowglen.

“We narrowly missed last Saturday and hope we can make amends this week,” he said.

They will have to improve however to take out Saturday’s race having been beaten by the favourite Sea Siren for her two winter Group 1’s when fifth and fourth respectively in the BTC Cup and Doomben 10,000.

Piccolo six-year-old Temple Of Boom meanwhile hasn’t won a race since the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Randwick back in April and also ran the BTC Cup – Doomben 10,000 double running ninth and then a much improved third.

Temple Of Boom has had two runs this time in finishing fifth to Buffering first-up in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m0 at Caulfield before their credible fifth in the Manikato.

“It’s his favourite track (Flemington),” Gollan said of Temple Of Boom.

“He runs his best races there and it’s a bonus getting back on the straight after having the two corner races.”
